Top Indoor Playgrounds in Halifax

Hey parents, are you looking for fun indoor play facilities to take your kids to in Halifax? Here are some of ChatterBlock's favourites.

Ice Patch Hollow Indoor Playground

Brian Hiltz created a book series featuring fun and adorable cartoon animals. His first book was called Joey the Penguin, a story about a penguin who lives with his friends in a make-believe place in Antarctica called Ice Patch Hollow. Brian decided to bring this fantasy world to life by creating an indoor playground inspired by Ice Patch Hollow. 

At the playground, children have fun playing on the play structures and with the array of toys, but they also get to interact with characters from Brian's stories, like Joey the Penguin, Preston the Polar Bear, and Edna the Octopus.

Ice Patch Hollow greatly welcomes walk-ins ages 1 to 12 years old from 9:30am to 6:00pm seven days a week. They also host parties with a private party room starting at $230. 

Pricing: All-Day Passes for toddlers ages 1 to 4 are $9.99. Kids ages 5 to 12 $13.99.

You can also book your child’s next birthday party at the Fun Zone! Bring up to 20 kids ages 10 and under, then let them play for an hour in the Fun Zone and then let them eat and play for an hour in the birthday party room. The Fun Zone will supply balloons, napkins, plastic forks and paper plates, as well as a microwave and fridge… you just bring the kids, the food and the cake!
